A few weeks back, Warner Interactive and Monolith Productions revealed the voice cast for the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Kumail Nanjiani, star of Silicon Valley, The Big Sick, and Replay, is one of the game's cast members, and you can see how he's helping to bring the uruk enemy known as The Agonizer to life.

As you can see in the behind-the-scenes video below, The Agonizer is a bit of an oddity. He has a tendency to overthink things such as pre-battle taunts, with humorous results. We'll have to see how well this goofy conceit fits into the game's larger world. On the upside, if he ends up being completely awful, there's a good chance that you'll be able to perform the ultimate heckle.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 10. For a slightly more serious look at the game, take a look at a recent trailer, which shows spider-queen Shelob in another form.
